In recent years, with the increasing demand for Agile services in product/software development, we have observed that 'good' technical practices (which unfortunately is colloquially referred to as 'DevOps') are commonly becoming unmoored from good intentioned implementations of Agile practices and frameworks. Let's look at how DevOps and Continuous Delivery enable predictable cadence on multiple levels.


Outline/Structure of the Talk

  1. The problem to be solved: Agile sans DevOps
    1. What are we trying to achieve?
    2. Why doesn't this work well?
  2. Lean-Agile Basics
    1. Each core principle will be tied into subsequent topics
  3. Agile powered by DevOps:
    1. Accelerated value delivery
      1. Buying information
      2. Being 'Done'
    2. Increased quality
      1. Shift-left
      2. Reducing variability in outcomes
    3. Collaboration across the enterprise
      1. Shared ownership of work
      2. Efficiency can mean silos

Learning Outcome

Attendees should have a better awareness of what DevOps enables and specifically why it is worth investing in infrastructure that enables smaller batch sizes (sprints, teams, units of work, etc.)

Target Audience

Government, Executives, Coaches, Lean-Agile Enthusiasts

Prerequisites for Attendees

Participants will need to wield a basic understanding of Agile concepts and have heard of DevOps prior to attending the session.

    Chris... do you have a deck to support this abstract?  If not, do you any other representative example of a presentation you've done elsewhere.  Thanks. Phillip
